    What is the difference between CC and BCC?

    When emailing, what is the difference CC and BCC? Why would you use one over the other?

    The difference between cc and bcc is that those cc identifies the additional individuals other than the primary addressee.  The BCC lets you send to additional individuals without others knowing that they were part of the receipients.

    CC means Carbon Copy and BCC means Blind Carbon Copy. Both are used to send emails to multiple addresses. While addresses entered in CC are visible to others, those included in BCC will remain hidden. When sending emails to an intimate group, CC is fine. But if the mailing list includes persons not known to each other, it is better to use BCC.

    Additionally to the responses you have received so far, you would include recipients in cc to let them know that they need to be in the know, but that you are not expecting them to respond. eg.if you need to inform your colleague that you have completed part of the task assigned to you and your colleague can take it forward, you would mark your colleague on the mail in the To: tab.  Should you wish to keep your boss in the loop, you would mark a cc to him. You would not expect him to respond on this routine matter.

    You would bcc people, if you are mailing to people who are strangers to each other and who do not need to relate to each other either in response to the mail or ever, henceforth. In a more sinister way, you would bcc a person who you would want should be in the know but secretively, so that no one, either marked or copied in the mail will know of your intentions.

    CC is carbon copy and everyone see's who you've sent the e-mail to or you've mailed a letter or documentation to.  BCC is those who are blind copied and the others don't know they are receiving that same information.
